As a board-certified Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, Dr. Rasmussen is fully committed to maintaining the highest standards in patient care possible.
After completing his undergraduate degree at the University of Florida, Dr. Rasmussen earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine at the University of Alabama School of Dentistry. This was followed by two subsequent residencies at UAB in Birmingham to specialize in periodontics. In the last year, he served as the Chief Resident, which is awarded to only one person in the program each year. Soon after, he achieved the great honor of becoming a Board-Certified Periodontist. Today, Dr. Rasmussen is a part of the Seattle Study Club’s local chapter in Tampa, FL and regularly completes over 50 hours of continuing education each year. He also lectures at several nearby study clubs on soft tissue grafting and dental implant placement.
When he isn’t busy at the practice, Dr. Rasmussen absolutely loves playing golf – he’d play every day if he could! He also grew up a football fan and still roots for his hometown Buccaneers, as well as his Alma Mater (the Gators, who sadly aren’t as popular here in Tallahassee). He is additionally a professional pilot with well over 500 hours in the sky so far.
Dr. Rasmussen is extremely passionate about volunteer dentistry. While in the Tampa area, he consistently donated his efforts at Mission Smiles. This has not changed in Tallahassee, as he volunteers at the Kearney Center weekly to help the homeless population.
